Blog Hop for Cox Family!





Greetings!

I'm here with a special post for the Cox Family Blog Hop!


The paper crafting community really is a small world and you may know Ann Cox. She  happens to be a fellow teacher, and I've grown to love this "cyber" friend of mine, even though she kicks my butt regularly at Words with Friends!

Ann's husband, Kevin, recently underwent a triple bypass surgery and is recovering, praise God, but he is also struggling with his one kidney. He previously donated one of his kidneys to his father for a life-saving operation. Kevin has been the primary caregiver to the couple's young son, Liam, while Ann teaches. So you can see, they have their hands full right now.

As you can imagine, when their paper crafting friends saw a need, they jumped right in to help! Ann's longtime friend, Karen Kelly, set up a Go Fund Me page for the Cox family, then another creative friend, Ashley Newell, came up with the blog hop to help spread awareness. If you are able to contribute, please know that any amount is appreciated.

Ashley has organized a great hop, full of warm and encouraging cards to support the Cox family, as well as great prizes for you, the hoppers! Please comment on all the blogs along the hop for your chance to win one of the prizes! Winners will be posted on Ashley's blog on February 11.

I hope you like my card. I struggle with creativity frequently during the school year, but this card actually came together very easily, like it was meant to be. :)

Thank you for visiting and please send a kind thought and prayer to the Cox family.
